Transitioning from a collegiate athlete to a working professional with a desk job took a huge toll on my overall health. It was tough to find the motivation to get to the gym after a long day at work. I started working with Jonas about three years ago and he changed everything. He's an incredible trainer, coach, and person. I highly recommend F.A.M.E. Fitness!

As a career coach, Karen is a great listener and approaches my needs in job searching professionally and kindly. She is on point with my strengths and weaknesses giving me excellent suggestions that I can utilize right away to make me succeed. Karen's interest in my success goes beyond my expectations and makes me want to do more because it's a wonderful gift to have someone "on your side" cheering and working for you to succeed, this is how she made me feel when speaking on the phone. I feel her personal interest that I achieve my goals. I highly recommend Karen as a career coach and hope to continue to work with her in the future. Gigi

Linda and I quickly formed a working relationship that is helping me to resolve some conflicts that have distracted me from other, more productive pursuits. Her "assignments" have proven very insightful and beneficial, especially through a stressful time involving serious illness in my immediate family. Linda's balance of vision paired with practicality works for me and clarifies my own instincts. She is a real asset as a life coach!!

Cynthia is one of the most knowledgeable professionals I have ever met. There is no one out there with better experience in human resources and business and the results really show. CJ Davis consulting coached me in the proper techniques for getting into the top firms. Using what I was taught, I was able to get in front of companies like Google, McKinsey, and The Boston Consulting Group. I would definitely recommend CJ Davis to anyone who needs coaching or consulting for their organization.

I sought out a coach because I was looking for guidance on ways to improve my career. I was experiencing a lack of fulfillment and needed help defining my professional goals and strategies for achieving them. Chris and I were able to set up our first meeting within one week of our initial call which I appreciated. We have had two meetings so far, and I can tell already that he is very astute. He helped me define my core challenges and goals within the first hour and we're already working on a plan for moving forward. He is personable and very encouraging. I would absolutely recommend him.

Danny Dickerson is a highly motivating fitness and nutritional trainer. His personality, demeanor and temperament are uniquely suitable to be a coach for others. He is neither too strict nor too easy, but rather strikes the right balance to motivate his clients. He has a fund of knowledge in both physical training and in nutrition that he shares with his clients. Such extra sharing of his knowledge enhances the client's desire to succeed. Indeed, I have already seen great results. I have more energy, a better sleep pattern, a decrease in inches and more serenity. I am able to do more work around the house as a result of our work together. He is very detailed oriented and each session is both logical, linear and he documents the sessions. He also is quite a raconteur, which helps in his instructions. He is also timely and punctual. I would recommend him for any position with any organization, or for a reference to be added on any additional referral lists. Best regards, Joseph Friedman Attorney at Law

Kathie was my Health Coach in the summer and fall of 2017. Early on, she asked questions about what was going great in my life and what I wanted to improve. Kathie then worked with me to set realistic goals for myself. Each week during our coaching session, she had a well thought out approach to discussing my progress and coaching me to learn the importance of positive self talk and personal encouragement. In just 90 days time, I achieved a significant amount of progress towards my goals and I loved Kathie’s coaching style! Caryn

Katrina is an excellent life coach. She pays special attention to what your individual goals, and works to formulate a plan best-fit for your life. From my experience she had a deep understanding of the power of the mind, and was able to explain in simple terms how to overcome mental blocks and get the most out of life and your personal experience. Attaining my goals seemed to become a much simpler and less daunting task after having worked with Katrina.

Working with Rick has been a really good experience so far. I had a few items that I wanted a career coach to help provide feedback/guidance on and I really think working with Rick will help through these items. One item is more of the solid goal planning I think most professionals may want to seek assistance with from time-to-time. As the CEO of a company in a similar industry, I am looking forward to his perspective as we work through that process. Another item is not as streamlined as goal planning but offering guidance on challenges faced at work. Rick shares a very fresh perspective which balances individual awareness to situational reality (i.e., how are you as the client experiencing the actual challenge at work). Rick is astute and catches onto dynamics very quickly so he is able to assess situations -- this is likely the most important skill a career coach can bring to helping with these situations. I am early into this process with Rick and I already feel that his offerings have helped me gain a new perspective on #2 so that I can focus on #1. It's time well spent to invest in yourself within your career and I believe Rick will help compliment that.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What is a career coach?

If you’re interested in furthering your career and want expert help, a career coach is a smart solution. A career coach is a professional you hire to guide you during a job search or a career transition, or to help you improve and advance in your current position. A career coach analyzes your work situation and learns what your professional goals are. They then create a strategy to help you achieve your targets. Throughout the process they should provide objective feedback and guide you in approaching the process strategically. Here are some of the tools and tasks a career coach may assist you with:

  • Helping you build a strong resume that reflects your work history, potential, and skills
  • Coaching for interviews and strategies for solid answers built around your resume and the target job
  • Defining your career goals
  • Creating a plan for job searching
  • Improving networking strategies and skills
  • Developing strategies for negotiating raises or promotions
  • Assessing why you’re not getting where you want to go
  • Identifying new positions or career opportunities that fit your skills

Why is career counseling important?

Career counseling can help you discover your career path, help you overcome challenges preventing you from finding happiness in your job, or help you learn more about career opportunities that are available to you. Career counselors are typically counselors who specialize in helping guide people into their best career choices. As professionals, they have typically completed a master’s degree in counseling with a focus on career counseling and bring a nuanced understanding of the emotional blocks that prevent someone from doing what they love or getting ahead in their current position. Here are some of the ways that career counseling can help:

  • Identify your skills and talents and how they correlate to different career paths
  • Educate you about the educational requirements for launching in various careers and what earnings can look like
  • Help you understand the kind of environment you want to work in, and which careers are best suited for that
  • See opportunities to transfer your existing skill set to other career areas
  • Help you identify causes of tension or unhappiness in your current career and how to overcome those difficulties
  • Help you create a game plan for moving forward
  • Provide a safe space for you to understand your feelings about career choices you’re making

What is a career counselor?

If you’re feeling lost in your career path, overwhelmed, in need of a job but confused as where to start, or ready for change but uncertain what you want, a career counselor is a good choice for you. A career counselor is typically a licensed professional who has earned a master’s degree in counseling — likely with an emphasis on career counseling. Each state has different licensing requirements for career counselors, so be sure to research before reaching out to a pro.

Due to their academic backgrounds, career counselors often have a more holistic and in-depth approach than a career coach. Career coaches are not regulated by states and also tend to be more business-focused — a good fit for those who know what they want but need help achieving it. On the other hand, a career counselor provides guidance and clarity around some of the more emotional aspects that job hunting and career movement entail. Career counselors meet with you in a series of one-on-one sessions. They assess your personality and learn what drives you. They get a detailed understanding of your work history and your hopes, and often work to help you discover any internal blocks preventing you from going where you want to go. Hiring a career counselor is appropriate at any time in your career, from recent graduate to executive-level management.

How much does it cost to hire a career coach?

When it’s time to take your career to the next level, it’s time to hire a career coach. The cost to have a career coach help you with your professional journey will vary based on how many sessions you require, the level of coaching you desire, and the rates of the coach as determined by their experience, expertise, education and training. On average, career coaching sessions can range from 60 to 120 minutes, depending on the professional and what your needs are. Career coaches in smaller towns and areas with a lower cost of living will also typically have lower rates than those residing in large metro areas like New York, although most do offer remote coaching. Many coaches also offer a free introductory consultation, which gives you the opportunity to determine if their personality and coaching style are the right fit. It’s helpful to ask the coach about their relevant experience and get references from former clients. Depending on the professional, session rates could range anywhere from under $60 to well over $250 per session. Package discounts are a good way to commit to the relationship as well as get savings on services.

How much does it cost to hire a career coach?

A career coach provides one-on-one sessions to help you reach your career goals or overcome any challenges you’re having in your career path. The cost to have career coaching can vary based on factors such as the number of sessions you purchase at one time and the experience and rates of your counselor. Career counselors are typically professionals who have earned at least a master’s degree in their field. Based on their academic background, supplemental certifications they have received, and any postdoctoral work they have done, their rates may vary. Typically career counselors offer reduced rates when you sign on for their services on an ongoing basis. A typical price range for career counseling services (nationally) could be $75-$150 per session. Remember to always ask if the career counselor offers a complimentary introductory session. You want to make sure the relationship will be the right personality and counseling style fit to help launch your confidence and upcoming career changes.
